Final Day as PKS Guest Designer ;(

Welcome friends and thank you for visiting me on my final day as Guest Designer for Peachy Keen Stamps.  I had so much fun.....who doesn't have fun using the cute Peachy Keen stamps?

Today is a Let's Face it Friday challenge day and the theme is Back to School (hence the theme I took on for the week ;) ) My project for today is a special Back to School gift for a very special person in my daughters elementary school career.  Mrs. Guerard is the school nurse and with Madison having type 1 diabetes.....Mrs. Guerard and Madison have gotten to know each other quite well.  I am so blessed to have Sandy at school taking care of Madison.....I know that she is in good hands and is well taken care of!

I spent some time playing with my Gypsy over the past month or so and created this desk that I am a bit proud of.  I just love how it turned out.  I used the Cricut cartridges: George and Basic Shapes and Designer Calendar (optional) to create the Gypsy file.  If you would like the .gypsy file click here.


I used the cricut and gypsy to cut the pieces out of thin chipboard and then I used Walnut Stain distress ink to give it that school desk color.  I then folded and adhered the pieces together using red tape.  When creating the drawers I added some metal clips and brads I picked up at a rummage sale this summer (I believe they may be close to my heart brand).  I created a card to fit atop the desk using the same ink and I stamped the cute little apple from Peachy Keen Stamps Faceless Fruit and added a cute little smile using Peachy Keen Stamps Everyday Character Face assortment.  I then used my mini sharpies with the sharpie holder for my cricut from Chomas Creations; to create the little calendar for atop the desk.  Afterwards I realized I really should have made a yearly calendar stapled together so she could peel off each month....but....next time ;)



I then filled the little drawers with goodies for Mrs. Guerard.  Some paper clips, staples, post it notes, hard candies, and some quarters (Madi borrowed a few quarters from Mrs. Guerard last year for cool treats on Fridays.....I figured I would give her a stash of them back ;) )




Thank you so much for joining me during this fun Peachy Keen Stamps week!  I hope you have enjoyed the projects that I have shared with you!  Don't forget to leave a comment here and also on the Peachy Keen Stamps blog for your chance to win the Wide Eyed Kids stamp set sponsored by Peachy Keen Stamps.

That is amazing, sorry on the Peachy Keen site I put teacher instead of nurse. I'm sure she will love it. You should be very proud, you are very creative. Great job.
